    have an experience to a visit to Udaipur city in Rajasthan in North India which is a place of historical monuments, forts, lakes, palaces, temples, jain temples, and different cultural backgrounds and related monuments which I felt most important and nice to view. The Kambar fort which is the largest and spacious one is wonderful to a visitor and the manpower that built such a great fort in those days of poor communication facility is really amazing. Hundreds and thousands of people are visiting this fort far and near of the places including foreigners.Then Haldi ghati fort which is historical with so much legendary stories of war between the mighty mughal emperors and brave Ranas of Mewar. The legendary Haldi Ghati war is a part of History and moreover the story of Chetak the Royal Horse which saved his master's life in time. The lake palace and other different forts are also very interesting and to learn the history of India of the time. I loved the place and palances and tried to understand the history through them.

    It is a nice thing to see new places, people and understand the culture, living habits, people's movements, the business stalls, and hotels, cafeteria, and restaurant like avenues and different cuisines of that place which I am always likes to enjoy. Together with the most important part of my journey is to understand the historical backgrounds of the places that I visited and erstwhile rulers and transformation of the society, the affluence, as well as poverty, the affluent people and life styles, the poverty stricken communities and the reasons, strengthening the women power and its implications all are things to be known for a close observer of new places I think. The river systems, the water sources, the crime rates that disturbs the peace in the locality, the non governmental organisations working for the development and improvement of the places and people, also the attempts to make the folklore of the places in its originality for the future generation, also my concern when I travel to the new surroundings and people. The theaters of the new places, the temples, festivals, the different music instruments, as well as ornaments and its styles, the body languages of the people and their dress codes, all are much interested.

    i would recommend all poets to prefer a place made for poets. such as:
    island of jersey as the warmest spot in Britain
    choice for an autumn holiday
    India comfortable and majestic
    relaxing hill stations and beaches idyllic
    warmest welcome awaits at greater Glasgow
    with stunning sites and boats to row
    isle of man magical short break
    castle rushen and Victorian steam railway

    The Ghost Festival(in Keelung, Taiwan)

    - Good Brothers(ghosts) are allowed to be free on July 15th of the lunar calendar


    All family names are excited and lined up to wait
    For the Good Brothers to join their party parade
    To find the splendid way to that speechless gate
    Opened on this holiday their colorful ferries never fade.
